A Christmas wreath on the front door gives you this warm feeling. Please be welcome and have a Merry Christmas!
- Craft knife
- Self-healing cutting mat
- 1 sheet of green paper
- 1 sheet of red paper
- Glue / double-sided adhesive tape
- Alphabet stamps
- 3D foam pads
- Golden, red & white pearl stickers
Instructions – step by step
Step 1: Grab a sheet of white paper and fold it twice. Draw a quarter circle shape in the inner side of the paper. (Tip: You can use a jar lid / tape to draw a quarter circle.) Also draw waves on the border for a playful Christmas wreath look.
Step 2: In the quarter circle itself, you draw another quarter circle which is half its size. Also draw waves (just 1 or 2 since it’s small) on this border.
Step 3: Cut out the wreath shape, unfold it and place it on a sheet of green paper. Trace the shape with a pencil and cut out the wreath shape.
Step 4: Now we’re going to design a bow shape. Fold a sheet of white paper in half and then:
– Bow: Draw half of its shape on the fold and cut it out.
– Knot: Draw half of its shape on the fold and cut it out.
– Ribbon ends: Draw the ribbon end on the sheet and cut it out (you only need 1 shape)
Step 5: Trace all bow shapes on a sheet of red paper. The ribbon end shape needs to be traced twice. Then cut out all shapes. Stick the bow shapes together by using glue / double-sides adhensive tape.
Step 6: Stick the bow onto the wreath shape, at the bottom side.
Step 7: Now we’ll decorate the wreath to give it a real Christmas look. Stick the golden, white & red pearls onto the wreath. Use this pattern: gold, red, white.
Step 8: Stamp the text “Merry Christmas” on the bottom side of the card.
Step 9: Put 3D foam pads on the backside of the wreath. Then carefully stick the wreath to the card’s front side, above the stamped text. Your card is ready!
Tip: Use the shape templates again to craft more Christmas wreath cards.
